Yes Sane 17, I know you are in the USA, and therefore, I will provide a link for you to enjoy the Simbas action. In addition to that, I will also provide a link for the Safland 7s in Swakopmund Namibia on Saturday.

The Hashtag on twitter will be (#SimbaniOkombe) which in essence means the Simbas will win the cup in the native Swahili langauge plus the Simbas will also honour their departed soul brother Mike Okombe for this tournament with a one minute silence in every game.

Chile dominating the game, 13 -3 now, looks like the Simbas still have Jetlag.

Chile try again after 69 mins , score now 20 -3. The Simba came to the tournament as tourists. No heart whatsoever in the game. Chile firing on all cylinders.

Chile win the game 23 - 3. Good game by the Chileans suffocating the Simbas xvs. The Simbas should step up their efforts in the next game.

Russia defeat Hong Kong 16-13 with last kick of game.

We played much better (for the most part) than the scoreline suggests, although Hong Kong were 100% successful in converting their attack(s). Krotov and Gritsenko were immense, as was Golosnitsky in defence. Plus the sevens stars showed their stuff. Unfortunately Gaisin's stuff was - after a couple of very good corner-finders - kick the ball dead time and time and time again (again, he really needs work on this). Pretty good outing all told really...

A lot of losses in the 2nd half. But the victory over the motivated Hong Kong is already good.

Yes, they decided to go for holiday and post selfies on instagram instead of focussing on the game.

Kenya to play Russia on Tuesday. I just hope Russia don't reach half a century. Considering the first game, looks like it will be smooth sailing for Russia against the Simbas.

Paarwarter should not be afraid to try & experiment new ideas/players. This is his only chance. Results really don't matter in this tournament. Just picking up valuable experience & playtime before next years do or die WC qualifiers.

Actually they lose (if world rugby ranking calculator is right) just one place. But close to 2 ranking points.
Russia is moving up to 18, Germany to 22. Canada up (!) to 23 thanks to Hobg Kong dropping to 24.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Yeah, that's weird. Apparently they are so far behind Georgia in the rankings that they couldn't lose any more points. And obviously Georgia couldnt gain any either.

I expect the Russian pack to dominate against the Simbas. Probably looking at a score of 45 -12 for the Russians, and then I also expect Hong Kong to run the Chileans rugged with a 25+ scoreline. I could be wrong, but let's wait for Tuesday.
